    I'd really like to see this. At first glance, I'm worried that the star sticks out so far from the frame that cranking the reel will be like it has a wide spool. I hope it doesn't just come in high gear ratios. Something around 4:1 -- as well as 6:1, or even tow speed! -- would be nice...

    Hallelujah!
    Few things prove the existence of a loving and benevolent Diety- garlic and onions for example, or the occasional miracle. Now, "Proof Positive", as Cal Worthington would say; the Avet star drag! Thank God I have been allowed to live this long.

    Specs? Capacity? Drag #s? Gear ratio? And most importantly when will they be available?

    According to the comments from Avet on their Instagram page they are targeting having them to market within 3 months. Didn’t see any specs

    The Okuma Tessoro is gonna suffer the same fate as the Cedros now that Accurate and Avet offer star drag reels.

    Avet needs to get on the stick and put out specs on the new star drag. Accurate is doing that and unless Avet does something to show why a buyer would rather have an Avet than an Accurate, Accurate will grab the entire market for US-made upscale star drag reels. When are they coming out? What sizes will they come in? How much will they sell for? And what about them makes them better than other star drags?

    Everybody seem to have forgotten the Torgue. That is a fantastic reel in every way possible, except for the gold color
